There's no shortage of jaw-dropping videos capturing insane feats of athleticism, daredevil stunts and crazy impressive tricks. But there's a fair chance the average dude or dudette (someone like you or me), with some practice and an ample set of cajones, could make a solid effort to duplicate the original.
Precisely choreographed guys sinking baskets while leaping into a pool? It may take hours and hours, but you could probably make a...mediocre reproduction.
Grind the railing along the steps outside of the public library? The outcome could be quite the gruesome skate injury, but you'd ultimately walk away from it—and probably get hundreds of thousands of views.
However, there are plenty of moments documented for the world to see that feature people doing things that are best left to the 'professionals'.
I'm talking about stunts, feats and outright reckless behavior that incorporate the kind of elements that end up in obituaries—altitude, speed, forces of nature and even...sewage. Granted, they may be impressive obituaries, they'd still obituaries.
These are the sports videos that you would die trying to recreate.
